The stock header is light gauge titanium, and having the hole patched by welding a piece over it, the most obvious way of repairing it, is a job only for a very skilled TIG welder.

If you want the easiest, lowest cost means of fixing it ( I did not say pretty), you could take a piece of sheet metal, form it to the pipe, epoxy it on, and hold it in place with a hose clamp.

The easiest way to fix it neatly is to replace it with something used from eBay or the classifies here.
